Official ArmA 2 site description
The BTR-90 was designed in early 1990's for the Russian Army and Marines. It was meant to fulfill a wide range of roles from fire support to reconnaissance. It was first shown publicly in 1994.
Since then, limited numbers have been produced. In 2011, however, the Russian Ministry of Defense refused to buy the IFV and banned it for export. Currently, existing BTR-90s are in service with the Internal Ministry of the Russian Federation.
In Game Edit
The BTR-90 fulfilled medium armor role for the Russian Armed Forces in ArmA 2. It was meant to be the counterpart of the American LAV-25. Compared to the LAV however, the BTR-90 has far superior firepower with its much wider array of weapons. While the LAV-25 is practically powerless against tanks, the BTR has a fighting chance with its anti-tank missile. Also, unlike in reality, the BTR-90 is seen to be widely used in the Russian Army.
